back to article Air NZ rolls out naked safety vid

Air New Zealand has rolled out a radical solution to the problem of self-loading cargo paying no attention whatsoever to its pre-flight safety briefings: Staff sporting nothing more than body paint and strategically-placed lifejackets... The vid forms part of the airline's Nothing to Hide campaign, which also features a …

    Usually in-flight arousal will see you standing in-front of a judge at Isleworth Crown Court.

    It still mystifies me why they sell porno mags in newsagents in the departures area.

    Quite Good

    To be honest, i found that quite enjoyable to watch - rather than the usual dull one they do where you only really pay attention if the person doing it is hot as it's the perfect chance to check them out.

    With the huge advent of online systems they should make you watch the video on safety before being able to print out your tickets - or something similar. (You can tell i don't fly often can't you :D)

    To encourage people to join the mile high club? :D

    Did anyone else notice...

    ...that because their clothes were painted on, they had the air of a 5-year-old CGI TV series about them? Watch 0:45 to 0:47 and tell me that doesn't look like Captain Scarlet-style rendering.

    Scott, as someone who flies a lot I have to say that if they do implement that I will have to hunt you down and kill you for giving them the idea.

    They might also get more people to pay attention if they didn't deliberately make it so dull. For example, instead of saying that inflating your life jacket inside the cabin "will impede your exit" they should say that it "will make you float to the ceiling, so you won't be able to escape".

    Kiwi vowel economics

    They are speaking English but only using only one vowel sound...and it's not one of the normal five.

    I don't know...

    ...not every airline should do this, methinks. Not all Bulgarian airbags are created equal, and some of them are very... Bulgarian indeed.

    Paris, 'cause she should definitely feature in more safety movies.

    The blonde girl was having trouble keeping a straight face... I wonder if there is a blooper reel?

    And in the UK...

    .... if you did this sort of thing, you'd probably get sacked for "Bringing the company into disrepute"...

    Granted I was watching without sound at work but to be honest they might as well have made a normal video that was rubbish. Yeah great body paint but not hardly as stimulating at the title suggests. Too much body paint if you ask me!


    Somehow I don't think anything in that video is really going to save you if the plane crashes.

    Trick of the light

    Am I the only one who read the baby lifejacket legend as "INFANY"?

    I'll get me coat.

    They'll have to do better than that to beat the Russians

    Check out the Girls of Expobank:

    (This is marginally NSFW - depends where you work)

    It's becoming a bit of a trend in Russia for companies to get raunchy photos of female employees for a corporate calendar. Corbina Telecom is another example.

    I don't know, I quite liked the bit with the manual inflation of the lifejacket.

    Yes, I am single and have been for a while, what's your point

    Not risky enough?

    The body painting is so clever, and the shots all so conservatively done that to be honest you could possibly watch this and not actually realise they're actually nuddy!

    Then again, since they're real staff and not actors then possibly they drew the line fairly well back... also is it me or do they all look like they're blushing furiously throughout the whole clip??

    beat the russians

    Maybe I'm spoiled 'cause I work in South Florida, but them there Russkie girls are overdressed.

    Is it just me or...

    does the first officer look a bit like Matthew Modine

    yes, I should grow up

    I didnt catch a word of the safety video, was too busy looking for boob.

    Ironic that Air New Zealand would do something risqué, since if you are a bloke, they assume you are a paedo....

    Dunno what you mean, only us Kiwis have no accent, it's you poms that speak funny.

    Years ago I was on a flight from Wellington to Christchurch just before a a big inter-region rugby game. There was a large contingent of club supporters (each with a carry-on luggage consisting of a dozen cans of Tui beer, none of which was consumed while on the 'plane) on board, and when the stewardesses started doing the safety demo these guys stood up and started doing it with them. They did a great job, and it was very funny to watch the stewardesses try to finish the demo while giggling hysterically. The whole plane gave them a round of applause when they finished, but they wouldn't do an encore.

    Definitely the most fun I've had watching one of those safety demos.

    That they didn't paint the hats and shoes.

    Mine's the paintbrush and the tin of emulsion
